    So does Eun Jae eventually use her mob card to save Woo Jin? Is this part of the curriculum for fellowship in Doldam? 😃

      That was my thought too. I think it might come in handy in a future episode if the writer doesn’t forget about it.

      Honestly she’s such an idiot. She intervened in a domestic abuse case with a clearly violent man without any backup or support of Mr Goo. What’s going to happen in ep 6 will be unfair but nothing I wouldn’t expect.

    Still trying really hard wrapping my mind on FELLOW FELLOW FELLOW

      I haven’t seen this episode yet—but yeah, they don’t know what a FELLOW is. I was a fellow and I had a steep learning curve when I was there (came from peds residency into a fellowship that was joint med-peds) and was out of my element for all of 6 months. You figure it out—or work until you do.

        I dont see why they couldnt have made her an intern or a first year resident. The nausea would make so much more sense. I guess they wanted a parallel subspecialty. (YYS’ Kang Dong Joo was GS and now so is Woo Jin)… If YHJ’s Yoon Seo Jeong comes back from overseas CS fellowship she would eat Eun Jae alive. 🤣

    How did she even get through her surgery rotation?

    How does doctor hierarchy work? What are the steps? How many years of study?

      college (aka Pre Medicine); 3-4 years
      Medicine; 4-5 years
      After which you get your license, as a general doctor.
      Intern; 1 year (varies per country, sometimes it is the same as first year residency, sometimes it’s the last year of medical school)
      Residency; 3-5 years (Depends on what specialty)
      Fellowship; 1-3 years (Depends on what SUB-specialty)

      The reason we find Cha Eun Jae weird is because as a CS “Fellow” it is presumed she has finished a residency. I dont know how it works in Korea but it’s usually, you finish general surgery, then you go into subspecialty training as in cardio, neuro or gs subspecialty like liver, gallbladder (like Dr Park Min Gyu)

      But it seems in the series she is the same year as WooJin who is a general surgeon fellow.

        Thank you for the detailed info.

        Even without knowing doctor steps, from common sense alone she shouldn’t be a 2nd year fellow or any year anything because she’s had this problem since med school, & to get to cardio she should be able to perform surgery, but she balks at blood & cutting someone up.

          I would have accepted it if they made her an intern or a first year resident. Sometimes these issues persist a while, i have friends who couldn’t tolerate anatomy lab but still eventually became surgeon because they wanted to. I loved my surgery rotation but eventually didnt become one. I wish they also showed her going thru therapy or practicing sutures with pig meat too. Her character has no other interesting background story to grab on to.

          1
          1

            Agreed. I also wished they’d shown us that. In the last season they showed therapy & practise sutures, I dunno why they didn’t even try showing us that she tried & failed & maybe that’s why she made such a reckless decision

Master Kim giving Eunjae a non-drowsy anti-nausea meds even makes the whole thing more hilarious LOL #RDTKs2

    I think I still like the whole dynamic of the series except Eun Jae’s story. but I’m only having trouble with her rank. and it would be a shame if I look at the whole thing to tank just because of her rank. I just try to imagine she’s an intern.

    The discussion between the evil chairman and new president was interesting and hits the feels. This is a true dilemma and while I don’t generalize, I know it’s true.

    I also like how Woojin is complex. That trauma is hard.

    Placebo !?

      I’m pretty sure it was a placebo, that’s why the label was hidden. Also, as a doctor how come she just casually took a random med from someone never diagnosed her ?o?

      Ooo i didnt think of that. It sounds like something Master Kim would do 😃

    The episode title actually said placebo. Pretty sure Kim Sabu just gave her some vitamin or calcium pills.
    Aren’t there generic anti nausea pills without any sedative effect?

      Yes, i havent finished that episode yet. 🙂 Im also now convinced it’s placebo. 😉

      Yes there are generic anti-nausea pills. Eun Jae was originally taking a very very very strong medication.

        Yeah i googled & hated her for it. The med seems to be a strong sedative & she was deliberately taking 2 pills of it everytime instead of other proper anxiety or nausea pills. Hell I even thought that she should take caffeine pills to counter if she’s so dead set on self medicating. At least use some logic if you’re going to pretend to be a doctor.

          She popped 4 pills of those at one episode where i totally screamed at my laptop. 🤣

            I screamed the first or 2nd time when she took two…. Especially after I read the googled info.

    I see, I see, this is about finding her niche. Ideally you figure out this sh*t as an intern.

    I’m having difficulty with how her character is written… just doesn’t seem to be as coherent as the rest of the new crew.

        I agree. She’s horribly written. Everyone knows an alcohol swab also takes off permanent marker and that whole scene with her getting a mask was just not funny. I just can’t believe she is supposedly a cardiovascular fellow. That means she’s had at least 3 years of general surgery, right? There’s no way she could have made it through that.

#RDKs2: Seeing Eun Jae in medschool is not an excuse. I get it, she\’s smart but weak in practicals. But that\’s medschool. Everyone is an idiot. What did she do during internship? residency?

    I kind of wish they made Eun Jae an intern instead of a CS fellow. That would make so much more sense.

      I’d still prefer the first choice, guy n2 had a decent personality but became creepy since show became a silly melo and even before that he barely knew her, she was just an idealized version of a caring person that matched his romantic type based on his parent issues.

I liked the first Romantic Doctor Kim. I don\’t know how I feel about Season 2 yet. MediBeanies, what do you think?

    Cha Eun Jae will never, ever be a doctor let alone my doctor and the fact that she was hired and a senior surgeon allowed her in the OR…well, only in dramaland.

      I prefer my surgeons to be awake, alert and not anxious about performing surgery. Also, they should be stone cold sober.

        She chose this as a occupation. That is what upsets me the most. Are you kidding me writers with this BS.

          I was wondering how she could get that far. A friend of mine was always dizzy whenever she saw blood, but she wanted to get into Medicine. She had to work hard to overcome that fear for years and she managed to get rid of it before she became a doctor.

      Yeah, I’m glad she got already caught in the first episode. >_>

      agreed. while I recognize her dream to become a surgeon, surely this issue should have been resolved before FELLOWSHIP. I’m not sure how it works in Korea but most countries have residency which is about 3-5 years before fellowship.

        Something tells me her character is monied and connected and that is how this came to pass. Those doctors were waaayyyyy too forgiving.

Still feel nothing for the main OTP. I am rooting for them individually, separately,… somehow, I\’m looking for a vague ending where they\’re not really together, but working on themselves. #LWF
